So, what does someone do after spending 10 years as the Privacy Commissioner of Canada?
Is 2014 going to be year of the data breach?
Is privacy dead? Is there going to be “life after privacy?”
These are but a few of the stories in this week’s Digest. Definitely an eventful week; as if there is ever a quiet week in privacy.
I had previously suggested that the quality of my intro messages to the Digest would improve once the Olympics were over, but, alas, I find myself still scrambling and my attention is divided. Not because I’m glued to the television to watch every moment of slope-style racing, curling or bobsledding, but because my own minor hockey team is in the midst of a playoff run. I coach a group of talented 10-year-olds, and we were sitting pretty after our first round sweep. The second round is proving much more difficult, however, and I find myself multitasking between solving privacy problems for clients, catching up on news and figuring out how we can score more goals against a formidable opponent.
Life is typically busy for all of us this time of year. Many projects need to be completed prior to the government’s year end, March 31; privacy policies need revamping; breaches need to be prevented—or dealt with, and that long list of PIAs you have been delaying require completion. It is busy, indeed, and this winter feels exceptionally long, so if you have taken the time to read this during this hectic period—and likely in the midst of e-mail overload—good for you, because you are taking a moment to do one of the most important things: staying on top of what is important for your profession.
Here’s to hoping that your weekend provides some deserved relaxation in these busy times. To those who are trekking to DC for the Summit, I look forward to seeing you there.
